HC0310.31 is a hybrid molecule with an inorganic silsesquioxane at the core and organic cyclohexylethylepoxy groups attached at the corners of the cage. HC0310.31 serves as a high temperature reactive diluent in both aromatic and aliphatic epoxy resins. POSS molecules also have robust resistance to environmental degradation such as moisture, oxidation, corrosion and UV radiation. EP0409 is also excellent at dispersing silica particles.
Additive for high hardness, hydrophobic optical coatings.
